Hunnesrück – the upbringing of the Celle stallions


Here you can go to the homepage

 

Visitors feel set back in the old days, when they enter Hunnesrück, close to Einbeck. This picturesque station was many years ago the summer residence of the Hildesheimer bishops and later on the Preußen military depot. Since 1921 the station in Hunnesrück is the place where the young Hanoverian stallions from the state stud Celle are brought up. After the war until 1982 there was also a herd of 50 Trakehner mares with their foals stationed in Hunnesrück. The upbringing of the stallions and a few livery horses is just a small part of the work done in Hunnesrück, which is mainly used agriculturally. 420 ha of fields are made up of sugar beet, rape seed and grains, with an additional 80 ha of green pasture for hay and haylage production and for the horses to graze on. Hunnesrück receives a lot of precipitation throughout the year therefore very little hay is made. The main bulk of the roughage feed is made up of high quality haylage.
